River Frome Reconnected

Sign up to the project newsletter

The River Frome Reconnected is a partnership project between South Gloucestershire Council, Bristol City Council, Wessex Water, the Environment Agency and the Bristol Avon Catchment Partnership (BACP).

It aims to improve the health and resilience of the River Frome and its catchment and to make sure the river can be accessed and enjoyed by all.

The project also works closely with other key partners such as Bristol Avon Rivers Trust, Avon Wildlife Trust, Natural England, Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group South West, Network Rail, Highways England and many others.

We are keen to work together with all relevant organisations and individuals to join up and align opportunities and work programmes for the benefit of the water environment.

The project aims to make improvements across five main themes:

  • responding to and managing flood risk
  • reconnecting people and communities
  • reconnecting the Frome to nature
  • redevelopment and planning the Frome
  • resilient landscapes/ sustainable land management

Adaption to climate change through spatial planning is an aspiration across all five themes.

The River Frome Reconnected Partnership is being delivered in four stages:

1. Pre-feasibility work Nov 2017 – June 2018
2. Feasibility study June 2018 – June 2019
3. Project programme specification July 2019 – March 2020
4. Ongoing integrated delivery of joint work programme April 2020 – onwards
